Values & Benefits at the FH OÖ What we stand for

Security & Solidarity

For us, people are in the focus of attention and that is why we don't believe in "Hire and Fire" - quite the contrary: The loyalty and experience of our employees is our most valuable resource! We work together in a team-oriented and respectful manner and also enjoy celebrating our mutual achievements. But even in times of crisis we stand together closely and leave no one behind.

Regionality & Responsibility

The FH OÖ is an important employer in Upper Austria and assumes regional responsibility - in two different aspects: Thanks to the decentralised structure with our four locations in Hagenberg, Linz, Steyr and Wels, we are always close to our employees and ensure that attractive jobs in different areas are easily achievable. Furthermore, the Upper Austrian University of Applied Sciences is closely networking with the regional economy and supports local companies with its know-how and new developments.

Family & Career

Modern working time models with flexible design options, individual parental leave management, nursing leave, paternity leave, "papamonth" and much more characterise our image of compatibility. With us, nobody has to choose between family and career - and this is even proved by a certificate: Audit University and Family

We give great importance to the development of our employees and support them in numerous ways: Whether it's part-time or sabbatical training, external training or further education as part of our extensive internal training program. There are many opportunities to learn new things and to make a career with us!

Diversity & Generations

We are convinced that diversity offers incredible added value! And this is why the FH OÖ has its own department that is largely dedicated to the topic of diversity and supports its appreciation through a number of measures and events: Gender & Diversity Management Conference

Our understanding of diversity also includes actively involving all generations. Whether it's flexible working hours, part-time models or measures to maintain health - we do our utmost to keep all our employees fit. Health, fun and pleasure at work and a good portion of curiosity about what is yet to come - we also rely on employees with life experience!


Flexibility & Digitalisation

Diverse and exciting fields of activity with sufficient creative freedom and plenty of space for your ideas, including state-of-the-art equipment with various possibilities for digital communication, are waiting for you. Working on campus with numerous joint events, the mix of social exchange and modern collaboration, and all this amidst an innovative university environment is an important success factor for us.

The IT department of the FH OÖ offers constant optimisation and further development of all our IT systems and services at the highest technical level, and therby guarantees demand-oriented, efficient and secure IT support in all areas. Our central IT Service Desk processes all requests quickly and can react very quickly to changing conditions. 

Innovative teaching

The FH OÖ sees itself as a pioneer in terms of new ideas and approaches in the field of university teaching and supports its lecturers in the implementation of new types of teaching. With our own centre for university didactics and e-learning and a large number of workshops, expert meetings and individual consultations, we secure the sustainable further development of teaching.

Attractive research environment

As the strongest research University of Applied Sciences in Austria, our university offers the ideal environment for future-oriented and innovative research projects - with the necessary freedom to set research priorities and to independently pursue projects. In order to ensure the quality and topicality of our teaching, we set great importance to the training and further education of our researchers.
